Cassie's Story

I am a full-time student in the social work field (masters level). Also a momma to three cats (Cinnamon, Fennel, and Dusty) and 2 dogs (Pepper and Gracie). You can see their pictures below!!

I believe in trying to enjoy the time you get for leisure. This means that I am reviewing anything that I feel like. Any genre of book, movie, comic book, or TV show. I don't limit myself, but as anyone I am drawn to certain things. One of the things that I am into is definitely horror movies and television, but less so in books. In books I tend to be drawn to social commentary types of books. Think "The Handmaid's Tale",  "The Color Purple", and "Push" (a.k.a. Precious is the name of the film that was adapted from this book) to get an idea. If it has a commentary on our society and is fiction I am totally there for it. I also enjoy books that allow me to escape from the world we live in as well. Sometimes we need that. Fantasy and mystery books for example are great to simply remove myself from the world around me.

I grew up with comic books. I continue to read them. Largely from the main two (DC and Marvel). I review them here because I appreciate this medium of artwork and respect the stories these 2 publishers tell. They are another form of escapism for me. I love the strong female characters and thrive to be somewhat like them and to have their value systems.

I have been through a lot in this life, so you will see me sharing on my Wednesday posts aspects of my life. Things that have impacted me, that I am interested in discussing, or that have been recommended to discuss from others that want to know my opinion on something. This is so I can vent or discuss things that otherwise I wouldn't be able to do.

Grey's Pet Family

Grey loves animals a lot, so these are her pet family!

Cinnamon was our first cat. He came from a local shelter. He enjoys sleeping, eating, and being demanding on getting his daily pets in.

Fennel was our second cat. He was dropped off as a kitten at my partner's parents farm house. His favorite thing is right before bed he comes cuddles and then when my partner comes into the room, he quickly runs away into some other part of the house.

Smoke was the local neighborhood cat, but when we moved into our new house he came with us. He is now an indoor cat. He is loving his new posh lifestyle of freedom running around the house.

Pepper was a our first dog. He was a shelter dog that my partner picked out. He likes to sleep the most. He is petrified of loud noises, so he gets babied a lot.

Gracie is our most recent addition to the house. She is an old gal. She is sweet and loveable. She has a few issues, like one of her legs causes her some issues. Overall though Gracie fits right in with the rest of her pet family. She is very much loved!
